Application Procedures

The Lillian and Larry Goodman Foundations do not accept unsolicited grant proposals. We ask that invited grant seekers begin the process by completing the form on our Web site. Within sixty days of receipt of your information, a program representative will be in touch regarding your initial inquiry. This communication may result in a request for a formal letter of intent (LOI) which will outline the project for which funding is requested. If the LOI is accepted, the applicant will be invited to submit a formal grant proposal by completing a Chicago Area Grant Application Form, as well as provide additional documentation as necessary.

We ask that before submitting a grant inquiry form, you carefully review our foundation priority areas and Grant FAQs section.
